A wide range of community groups proactively engages their volunteers and supporters to draw out as many drink containers as possible that they then return to their local machine or collection point to cash in the refunds.
Each one of these organisations decide to use the scheme to help the environment and reduce litter by placing “donation bins” or “large donation bags” at their local schools, swimming pool, footy clubs, or caravan parks to collect cans and bottles. These are then returned to a collection point, and the resulting funds are channelled back into important community programs that make their communities a better place to live.
The funds raised help finance important programs, from drought assistance & fire relief projects to food relief in-school programs and a wide range of other vital community initiatives.
